Peering issues, bis
I've been contacted by many of you with regard to this peering issue. The time has come for the ISPs to work closer together. As each of our networks grow, the need for peering *increases*. The networks that are exhibiting the fastest growth are those that encourage peering. I'm sure that most of you know this. I'm not opposed to setting some criteria for peering, and making that publically available. I am adverse to peering negotiations that occur "under cover of darkness" (NDA), or that are arbitrary (handshake agreements). I'm proposing that we form a unified front to negotiate these issues. Sort of a MLPA - but on a worldwide front. Let's take this off the NANOG list, though, unless there are strong objections. I'll set up a mailing list of interested parties, and we should get together over the next 30 days with at least a meeting in the bay area (SFO), one in New York or Washington, and one in Europe. I'll host them, details too be announced shortly.
